Diss: Software company Omnisoft to create 15 jobs at new development hub

SOFTWARE development company Omnisoft Services is to launch a new software development hub in Diss, leading to the creation of around 15 new jobs.

Omnisoft, which is based in Northern Ireland, is to set up the new operation on the Diss Business Park to work on the development of a new range of online games, web services and design, social media management, education training tools and software development services.

The hub is being led by Nathan Flatman, who recently returned to his home county after spending 18 years working in Ireland and London within a number of high-profile IT training and regeneration organisations.

“Bringing Omnisoft Services to South Norfolk has been a key strategic decision for the organisation and I believe shows a strong commitment to developing East Anglia as a hotbed of talent for leading IT companies,” he said.

Omnisoft currently employs just over 60 full-time staff at its County Down head office, servicing a range of clients in social media marketing, app development, web design and game development.

“We envisage in time to recruit a team of around 15 local QT programmers, lead and junior programmers, copywriters, games developer, graphic designers, illustrators, multi-media videographers, which will work on a number of projects including our Game to Change products and Keystagetwo.com education website,” added Nathan.

Formed in 2010, Omnisoft provides support for more than 30 companies worldwide and has become an exporter of IT services internationally with sales across Europe, America and Australasia.

“It’s a really exciting time to open the Diss office and we are committed to developing this hub into a major player within the South East,” he added.
